Air Fryer Bacon Pros vs Cons

  • Pros: The bacon cooks evenly and is crispy. It only takes 10 minutes to cook. Grease from the bacon drips through the rack as the bacon cooks, so the bacon comes out less greasy. The mess is contained to inside the air fryer, no splattering, which also keeps the smell of cooked bacon is more contained. We all love the smell of bacon, but not when it lingers for hours in the house.
  • Cons: Depending on the size of the Air Fryer, you can only cook a small amount of bacon at a time.
